Product developers from a wide variety of fields have come to trust Boeing for environmental testing of their products in harsh and potentially damaging environments. Boeing’s lab test facilities and teams have played a crucial role in ensuring that new and experimental products – from commercial and military aircraft, to automobiles, to satellites, to spacecraft –are equal to the challenges of the harsh conditions in which they operate, including extreme cold and heat, vacuum and pressure, solar radiation, rain, humidity, vibration, acoustic noise, and shock.
From the earth to the skies and beyond … prove your products in Boeing’s environments first.
Boeing’s Space Environmental Test Facility in El Segundo, California features a variety of capabilities specifically designed to test products against the harsh conditions of space. With decades of experience building and testing satellites, our labs can be used to simulate dynamic launch and space environmental conditions including extreme cold, solar and electromagnetic radiation, vibration and vacuum. Some key test capabilities are highlighted below.
The Boeing Noise Engineering Laboratory has an expert staff and state-of-the-art equipment ready to help you isolate and measure noise and its effects. Our dedicated noise facilities and sophisticated information-handling systems make our laboratory one of the best in the world.
The Interior Noise Test Facility features an anechoic and a reverberant chamber, and it tests and measures noise from environmental control systems and hydraulic systems.
The Materials Test Center accommodates structural acoustics testing on a variety of components and assemblies. It houses a flow bench and impedance tubes to test acoustical resistance and impedance and Rayls.
The Quiet Air Facility is a versatile, general-purpose hemianechoic chamber with two muffled air supplies and controls for developing and testing the design of environmental control systems and components, calibrating instruments, and developing and verifying small to medium-sized mechanical and electrical components and systems.
